Nothin’ But Music Film Screening and Concert
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm to 11:00pm
Sunday, October 8 / 7pm / $10
Nothin’ But Music film screening and live performances from Benny Speer of Benny and the Jets, Bobby Balderama of ? and the Mysterions, Nate Jones, and Eliza Neal and Howard Glazer of Eliza Neal and the Narcotics.
Nothin’ but Music shows the creativity and perseverance it takes to have a life long, full time career doing nothing but music – no day job to fall back on. We follow musicians Benny ‘Jet’ Speer from Benny and the Jets Band, a ‘working class’ musician at it for 40 years, and blues guitarist Howard Glazer. As well, we will gain insights from Question Mark of ? and the Mysterians, flutist Alexander Zonjic, singer Eliza Neals and many others. We see the diverse roads taken to have a lifelong career as a musician.
The movie has been named an official selection of the Royal Starr Film Festival. A portion of proceeds from the event itself will go toward MIU Men’s Health Foundation for prostate cancer awareness.
“Nothin’ But Music gets to the heart of pure musical passion, a state of being that has nothing to do with fame and fortune and everything to do with heart and soul and uncommon perseverence.”
–Mark Nardone, Senior Editor, Music Connection Magazine
“Nothin but Music is a fascinating look at the realities of the day to day life of working musicians. The artists featured are from the Detroit area but the stories are universal. It is a thorough insight into both the perfomers and the folks that surround them.” — John Wright; bassist, engineer, producer – The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra
